Ruby Jackson: Delicious Inspiration at Suffolk’s Lyceum Gallery

Ruby Jackson: Delicious Inspiration, an exhibit of sculptures, is viewable on-line as a presentation of Suffolk County Community College’s Eastern Campus Lyceum Gallery. A Zoom reception with the artist will be held on Monday, November 22 at 10 a.m.

Sag Harbor’s Ruby Jackson has created a large and distinctive body of work in wood, ceramic, paper, pen and ink, and polymer clay.  Her imagery is inspired by natural forms which she abstracts and explores.  In them, one can see her love of the east end, and particularly her interest in underwater sea environments.  On view are Jackson’s miniature sculptures of food and under water seascapes created in multi-media.

Jackson’s work has been exhibited in galleries in New York City, Long Island, and Sarasota, Florida.  Jackson was featured in “Takeover,” at the Southampton Art Center in 2019 where she shared her artistic process along with her work. 

Jackson is a two-time recipient of the “Best Sculpture” award at the Guild Hall Members’ Show (East Hampton, 2017, 1996). Her work has appeared in a number of reviews and publications including Newsday “Tiny Food Made of Clay by Sag Harbor Artist,” by Kay Blough, and,

Jackson grew up in Queens and developed a variety of sculpture techniques while living in New York City.   After moving to Long Island, Jackson earned a degree in Art Education from Long Island University.  For more than a decade, she served as Assistant to the Director of the Pollock-Krasner House in East Hampton. 

Jackson is passionate about teaching art to children and has conducted workshops in the public schools, as well as for the Nature Conservancy, The South Fork Natural History Museum, and the Children’s Museum of the East End.

Jackson spoke about her work at the Parrish Art Museum in Watermill, NY. A video is here:
